Princess Kate released an adorable snap of Prince Louis yesterday to celebrate his sixth birthday

Former royal correspondent and GB News host Andrew Pierce has claimed that Princess Kate "changed her mind" about releasing a photograph for Prince Louis' birthday.

The future Queen marked her youngest son’s sixth birthday by uploading an adorable image of the six-year-old Prince beaming to the Kensington Royal social media pages.

However, at the beginning of the day royal fans grew concerned about the prospect of no image in a potential break from royal tradition.

The couple eventually posted a new photograph in the afternoon, despite having traditionally provided it to the press under an embargo the day before.

Alongside the sweet snap of the young prince lying in the grass, Kate wrote: “Happy 6th Birthday, Prince Louis! Thank you for all the kind wishes today.”

Speaking on GB News, Andrew said: "The picture is normally released the night before the birthday."


Mike Parry said: "Exactly, normally we wake up on the day of the birthday and the picture is on the front and I thought, that hasn't happened.

"I think that the royals must have had a big rethink yesterday but it is a day late."

Andrew added: "We know that Catherine is sick and she is having treatment over her cancer scare, But the decision had been made.

"We're not going to put the photograph out. All the rows over the picture, the edited photograph or manipulated photograph, of her with the kids on Mother's Day.

"Then yesterday they changed their mind. It was as simple as that. I'm glad they changed her mind because it's a glorious photo. He's a belting little boy. They've made it absolutely clear the photograph has not been photoshopped or edited in any way."

Last month, Kate caused controversy by admitting she posted an edited photograph of her family to mark Mother’s Day.

The photograph was pulled from several photo agencies leaving the princess to apologise for any “confusion” on social media.

Catherine said: "Like many amateur photographers, I do occasionally experiment with editing.

"I wanted to express my apologies for any confusion the family photograph we shared yesterday caused."

She added: "I hope everyone celebrating had a very happy Mother’s Day."

The Princess of Wales bravely revealed her cancer diagnosis in a televised statement a few weeks later and asked for privacy so she and her family could come to terms with the news while she underwent "preventative chemotherapy".
